Visited the Taproom a few weeks back where I picked up a 22 oz of this and flew it home in my luggage. Have been anticipating it but was disappointed to read some of the subpar reviews. Well, nothing like lowering expectations eh?

Pours a nice clear light amber to dark gold color. Has a nice fluffy white head that fades to a light froth. Carbonation seemed fine.

Very subtle aromas, but I get a real light smoky oak character. Some light toffee like malt character with a little dark chocolate. I get no hop aroma. Has a nice fresh baked bread aroma to it.

Tastes like it smells. Tastes a little bitter with no noticeable hop flavor. I think this is one solid English Pale Ale brew. Light & drinkable. Could drink this quite often - I just never see it around Philly. Overall, I think the overall charm of this one is in it's subtleness. Glad to have tried it.
